With fans not permitted to attend shows in 2020 due to the COVID 19 pandemic WWE thought outside of the box and tried out some rather wacky ideas. A lot of those involved Rey Mysterio with perhaps the most infamous being the Eye for an Eye match he had with Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules in July 2020. Another of the wacky ideas took place a few months before with the Money in the Bank ladder match taking place at WWEs Head quaters in Stamford for the very first time.
The match saw the competitors in both the mens and womens match fight all over WWE HQ with the finish of the bout coming on the roof of the building where a ring was set up. You can see a snippet of the utterly bonkers match above with this exert featuring AJ Styles Vince McMahon and Daniel Bryan. Anyway back to Rey Mysterio the former WWE Champion was part of the match and had a rather interesting exchange with Baron Corbin. Corbin who at the time was still using his King gimmick threw Mysterio off the top of the WWE HQ building in what was another crazy spot.
And now speaking to Mornings with Matt and Bob Corbin has revealed the exactly crazy reaction to the angle. Corbin explained that the spot was so crazy that he was told that someone watching actually phoned the police to report a murder believing that what they saw was real. The craziest part of the story is although he was thrown off the roof of a building in story line Rey Mysterio barely missed any time on WWE TV and was back to feud with Seth Rollins as we have covered.
Rey Mysterio and Baron Corbin now Happy Corbin are both still part of the WWE roster so theres every chance they will be involved with the Money in the Bank Premium Live Event on July 2. The show is set to take place at the MGM Grand arena in Las Vegas and although its expected to be a big show with big names and big matches it almost certainly wont be as bonkers as the 2020 edition.
In an altercation with Corbin Mysterio was thrown off the building in a crazy stunt. And now speaking to Mornings with Matt and Bob Corbin has revealed the police were called by an onlooker to report a murder. Corbin said I got it in my head Well if Rey is one of the greatest ever lets see if he can fly. That was one of the craziest Money in the Bank matches… I think someone legit called the police that I murdered somebody.
